7 February 2012 - Vitamin C - Smile

Once upon a time, there was a woman named Colleen Fitzpatrick, who was the lead vocalist of a very cool rock band named Eve's Plum.  (Yes, they did get their name from the actress who played Jan Brady, but that's another story).   They didn't have much commercial success, and so their record label dropped them.  Frustrations following that broke up that excellent band.

So, Colleen Fitzpatrick decided to something different for awhile.  She took on a stage name - Vitamin C - and went a lot poppier.  This brought much commercial success and paid her mortgage.

Anyway, although I didn't like all her Vitamin C stuff, I did, and still do, love this very happy, cheerful song.  It fits with my optimistic personality. I hope you enjoy it as well.

So you have the frame of reference, here is an Eve's Plum video.  Notice the harder edge.  Frankly, I think the poppier sound suited Ms. Fitzpatrick better.... and I liked Eve's Plum.


  1. WOW! I had no idea Vitamin C was the singer of Eve's Plumb (loved that band).

  2. And...I even have this record (never listened to it, I got it when I bought someone's cd collection a few years ago). Maybe I'll give it a play.
